GoS – Nordic Seasons Limited Edition
Master of bladesmith Johan Gustafsson & watchmaker Patrick Sjogren established a new luxury watch brand.
Eminent master of bladesmith Johan Gustafsson and skilled watchmaker Patrick Sjogren came together in 2007 to establish a new watch brand Gustafsson & Sjogren. This young Swedish company is known for its production of truly unique watches with inspiration from the cold north of Scandinavia. Each watch is created using hand-forged Damascus steel that makes every single one into a masterpiece of watchmaking.
Damascus steel is forged by the technique of pattern welding that has been used more than thousand years. The technique was long lost and reinvented in the twentieth century. Besides creating a stronger and better steel, this techinque produces amazing patterns that never repeat, thus making every watch a unique piece of art.
Gustafsson & Sjogren uses Swiss movements and reindeer leather straps in the creation of their models. The company’s products are in high-end range and cost from $ 6,000 to $ 8,000. Lately, Gustafsson & Sjogren has created a limited edition of watch and knife sets, which showcase some of the most unique patterns and sell for $20K.
The artist takes architecture to a new level – literally, with his mind-bending series of flying houses.
